WASHINGTON (Sputnik) The United States has extended the January 7 order, which denied export privileges to 15 individuals and entities involved in supporting Iran’s missile program, according to a notice by the US Industry and Security Bureau released on Wednesday.

"Renewal of the TDO [Temporary Denial Order] is necessary in the public interest to prevent an imminent violation of the EAR [Export Administration Regulations]," the notice stated.

The sanctioned companies include Iranian Mahan Airways, French Kerman Aviation, British Skyco, Jordanian Al Naser Airlines and Sky Blue Bird Group from the United Arab Emirates, among others.

The US Department of the Treasury designated Mahan Air in 2011, alleging that the company provided support to a special forces unit of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, the Quds Force, and facilitated arms and funds shipments.
